Popping in on a gloriously green summer Saturday
(glorious = we got lots of rain!)
to share a quick tip that might help those
positivity blocks go together. Most of you have
likely done something along these lines already
but, as I always say, if I can help one quilter....
It's all in the pressing. This is a little hard to
explain and I think you'll get it better by just
looking at my picture but it's something like this:
On every rectangle section of the block,
I pressed my seams in; on every "square"
part of the block I pressed out.
Then, when putting all blocks together,
I just alternated my blocks.
Yes, it would look lovely to have them all going
the same direction, but I find that achieving
perfect points/intersections is more important
and, as long as you've created a pattern of
"every other one," I think the look is still great.
Getting my rows together was a breeze without
having to pin--I hate pinning my rows!
I'm super-caffeinated right now so
I hope this makes sense!
Happy Saturday sewing!
